Laterality probabilities fluctuate during ontogenetic development

  • Arve Vorland Pedersen (a1) and Beatrix Vereijken (a2)
Abstract

We argue that lateralities are not merely a result of phylogenetic processes but reflect probability functions that are influenced by task characteristics and extended practice. We support our argument by empirical findings on lateral biases in early infancy in general, and footedness in particular, and on hand preferences in nonhuman primates.
